Karimah Ashadu is a British-Nigerian visual artist based in Hamburg. Her practice is concerned with perceptions of self and place, and notions of labor pertaining to the socio-economic development of Nigeria and West Africa.


At the Institute, Ashadu will develop the script for her first feature film, Saltmine, an experimental docu-fiction about independence, labor, and patriarchy in contemporary Senegal.
